TestShock Dampening Action: Shocker air hitch effectively absorbs the jerking, tugging and damaging forces experienced with a typical hard connection when towing trailers. There is no reason to beat yourself or your equipment up with a hard connection between your trailer and your receiver hitch.

Choose from the Original Shocker Air and the Shocker HD. Original Shocker Air is rated at 12,000 lbs towing capacity and 1,200 lbs tongue weight. The Shocker HD is 16,000 lbs towing capacity and 1,600 lbs on tongue weight.

Provide Comfort: With a smoother ride! Travel a lot on concrete highways? No more jarring every time you cross a section divider. Your Shocker air hitch absorbs the thumps and bumps.

Simple Pivot Design: uses a rocker arm pivot design which produces a down and back motion, much different than other air hitches on the market. Our design eliminates the need for slides, parallel linkages, rollers, shock absorbers, or multiple air bags common to other air hitches.

Improves Safety: By giving you improved control of your tow vehicle and trailer. The air bag receiver hitch system allows for better control of your pickup and the trailer it is towing.

Saves Money: By reducing trailer breakage on both the trailer and the trailer contents! The Shocker hitch absorbs the damaging forces experienced with a typical hard connection. This greatly reduces the chances of breaking welds and doing other long term damage to your equipment as well as the valuable cargo you have inside the truck and trailer.

Adds Life To Your Vehicle: By reducing wear and tear on driveline and frame! Treat yourself, your equipment, and your passengers to a much smoother ride. You’ll never go back to the ‘old days’ of continual bumps, jerks, and vibrations. Join the list of satisfied customers that are using Shocker hitches. Order one today and get ready for your ultimate smooth towing experience the next time out.

Safety Notice: The Shocker Hitch is a heavy duty unit that in most cases exceeds factory receiver hitch weight capacities, therefore it is imperative that you always read and follow the tongue and towing weight recommendations of the receiver hitch that is mounted on your tow vehicle.

    A No, the HD hitch allows for up to 16K so if you are towing a lighter weight you would just reduce the air pressure in the air bag. The 16K is better overall than the 12K because it gives you more capability.

Customer Reviews

  1. Amazing product. Took out all of the bumps and jerking that I feel while towing my rough North Dakota roads.

    – Austin
  2. The ShockerHitch was recommended by a friend. The camper dealer I bought my RV from had never heard of it, but when they saw it and they were very impressed. My first trip included travelling over a winding mountain pass. The hitch made the trip very smooth and easy. Instead of jarring over bumps it was a smooth nudging sensation. Glad I bought it. Heading out for a long trip soon, will report back if any updates on performance.

    – Andrew White
  3. The best hitch I have ever used. For years I has the B&W turn over receiver hitch, and sorry I did not covert sooner to the Shocker Hitch.

    – Wayne Erdman
  4. Our towing vehicle is a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 (Diesel) and our camper is a 25′ travel trailer with a dry weight of about 4200lbs. I did notice a significant improvement but it did not completely eliminate the jerkiness of the ride even with multiple adjustments. I wish there was a ‘scale’ or a way to way to determine the amount of compression. Also, it seems like the metal retaining the bumper material is very close and could be limiting the amount of absorption. Some design modifications would really help make this a perfect towing hitch.

    – Khaled Shabany
  5. I’ve only had my Shocker Air Receiver Hitch (2″/12,000lb) for about 2 weeks now, but it is amazing! This is the nicest hitch I’ve owned in my 42 years! I towed a 9,000 lb cargo trailer 1,089 miles with this on my 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali, and the ride was smooth and quiet the whole way. Years ago when I towed a trailer cross country with a standard drop hitch, the ride was rough and sketchy the whole way. Thank you, Shocker Hitch, for helping to make my trip a comfortable and smooth one.

    – Adam Z.
  6. GAME CHANGER – no more tugging and no more pushing. I absolutely love my new hitch. When I look in my rearview mirror, my boat T-top is no longer moving and shaking. The difference that I see with save TONS of wear and tear on my boat, trailer and my NECK.

    – TIM GOINS
  7. This is the second shocker hitch I have purchased and the second one is even better than the first. Chrome plating of pins and the combo hitch are a welcome to avoid rust. Once you pull a trailer with this hitch you will never go back to the old system

    – Shannon Read
  8. So far so good. I have it on my 2020 F350 DRW. Matched up perfectly with the stock 2 1/2 receiver hitch. Pulled a 16foot trailer with a car on it. SMOOTH!

    – K G
  9. We recently purchased our second Shocker a hitch. We first purchased in 2014, this hitch has been nothing short of exceptional. Our recent and second purchase was due to an upgrading a trailer size and heavy capacity. Very pleased with the quality of both units and well worth the cost for the improved ride and reduced wear on our truck. CS has been more than helpful in both purchases and lightning quick shipping.

    – Rhonda & Brad Culpitt
  10. My camper has never towed so nicely. Huge improvement with this bumper air hitch. You can’t feel the camper and our stuff inside isn’t all over the floor anymore. Very smooth.

    – David Jacobson
  11. Excellent quality hitch wish I had one years ago. Will continue to have my business. If you want something that is built to last this is the product for you.

    – Brokemanlogging
  12. So glad we got this air ball mount for our 2020 silverado. It pulls our race trailer so so nice. Wish I would have found this years ago. Way easier on my back. Especially when travelling a long distance.

    – George Oliver
  13. I’ve purchased two hitches from Shockerhitch, the Shocker Air Receiver hitch with a 2-1/2″ receiver and it was the BEST thing I ever did for pulling a trailer [pull behind travel trailer]. You notice the difference right away and immediately realize that it was money very well spent. For another truck, an occasional puller [so I pull the hitch out when not using], I purchased a Shocker XR drop ball mount hitch. Both are solidly built, both have excellent craftsmanship.
